The M Squad and Checkmate releases from Timeless were so bad. I bought both but was never able to watch them straight through, the video quality was so poor.

It would be great to see M Squad and Checkmate in HD one day, but I suspect we live in the multiverse where that will not happen :(

Some I'd love to see are in need of a restoration like VCI did for "It's about Time"series.
2 early Wally Cox series (High School Science Teacher to Internatioanl Spy), one from William Windom (Jame Thurber) and a weird superhero duo Captain Nice and Mr Wonderfull. Both of thos were coming in during the Get Smart era as summer replacements.

I actually didn't mind M Squad-- I had never seen the show before, and I was happy to have the all-in-one, and relished it (enjoyed it through and through).

For me , if they could restore all of the color Cisco episodes I'd be thrilled...I see them on Amazon and Youtube, tired out of focus and wahed out!!

I just noticed that Pluto TV has a channel devoted just to Rawhide. Lo and behold, all the episodes on the channel are in HD, including seasons 1 and 4! Those seasons look so much better here than what was released on disc, especially season 4! It's too bad that these transfers haven't been put on disc yet. The thing with watching them on Pluto TV is that the episodes are interrupted by commercials.

Pluto TV also has a channel devoted just to Have Gun Will Travel. Season 1-3 are still not in HD. They rather look like they're from 16mm. Still, seasons 1-3 look a thousand times better here than on the DVDs, which featured transfers of video masters and all their video artifacts. In this case, I'd rather put up with the commercials on Pluto than watch Have Gun Will Travel Seasons 1-3 on DVD again, the DVDs look that bad.

Who released them on dvd? Mill Creek? Kino (Timeless)?

Looking again at the Pluto TV channels for Rawhide and Have Gun, not all episodes are available on demand. Many are missing, especially for Rawhide.

Rawhide looks great, definitely Blu Ray worthy. Here's hoping they do a complete bluray set one day!!
